“He asked to be substituted during the Champions League game (against Benfica on Wednesday). He has a little problem with his calf but he will be back in training on Sunday.” Galtier told a press conference on Friday.

There are more injury problems for PSG, with full-back Nuno Mendes out for three weeks with a muscle injury, while Kylian Mbappe is suffering from strep throat.

However, the French forward is expected to be included in the squad, Galtier said, although he could be on the bench, allowing 20-year-old Hugo Ekitike to get a fresh start.

Unbeaten PSG lead the standings with 25 points from nine games, two ahead of second-placed Olympique de Marseille, who host bottom side AC Ajaccio on Saturday.

Galtier said he would stick to the usual defensive system when asked if he would change his three-man central defense to a more stable four-man backline in light of injuries to Mendes and Presnel Kimpembe, who is still out with a hamstring injury .

“I’m not going to change the system, especially since we don’t have much time to work since we got back from Lisbon yesterday morning at 06:00,” he explained. After coming under fire for their alleged excessive use of planes to travel to Ligue 1 matches, PSG will this time travel by bus for the 150km journey to Reims, Galtier added.
